Ahead of their upcoming new album Atomos, A Winged Victory For the Sullen, the modern classical/ambient duo made up of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie, are set to release a new 12″ EP, featuring a new track from the album, and out take from the debut, and a remix by Ben Frost.
The debut album has to go down as my favourite ambient release of all time, it’s gloomy soundscapes being some of the most hauntingly beautiful I’ve ever heard, and no artist before or since has managed to recreate the sort of magic from that release, so needless to say I’m extremely excited for any new music they put out. And the beautiful new track “Atomos VII” can be streamed here:
With more of a sense of drama to the music than the band had on the debut album, the new track really weaves those emotional soundscapes the band creates so well, this time with an even more cinematic, soundtrack like feel. Building up to a vibrant, energetic climax, AWVFTS have really done it again. Atomos is one of my most anticipated albums of the year, and the new track is an excellent teaser.
The EP is set for release on April 28th 2014, and can be pre-ordered on vinyl, or mp3 at Erased Tapes Records:
